BinMaster's GWR-2000 guided microwave level transmitter is designed to provide continuous level measurement and utilizes time domain reflectometry (TDR) to measure the distance, level, and volume of powders or solids in bins, tanks, and silos. Courtesy: BBinMaster’s GWR-2000 guided microwave level transmitter is designed to provide continuous level measurement in vessels up to 100 ft tall with accuracy of ±0.08-in (2mm). It utilizes time domain reflectometry (TDR) to measure the distance, level, and volume of powders or solids in bins, tanks, and silos. This sensor features hazardous location approvals, a very small upper dead zone for accurate level measurement in low dielectric materials down to 1.3. It has 4 to 20 mA and Modbus RTU communication options.

The GWR-2000 housing is available in plastic, stainless steel or aluminum and has IP protection again dust ingress and water. An optional BinDisc interface enables push-button sensor setup and configuration on the unit. This TDR technology is proven to work in difficult applications with excessive steam, condensation, or buildup and is designed to be virtually maintenance free. The GWR-2000 excels in challenging conditions such as vessels with high dust and air movement, or excessive noise. The GWR-2000 has self-activating false signal suppression for increased reliability and level accuracy. Automatic probe monitoring reports immediately if the probe is broken to avoid damage to discharge equipment in the bottom of the vessel.
